Elmapuddy, Cloud9 part ways | HLTV.org

The 25-year-old is open to opportunities in both CS:GO and VALORANT.

Chris “⁠Elmapuddy⁠” Tebbit is no longer contracted to Cloud9 and is free to explore his options, it has been announced. The Australian coach arrived on Cloud9 in January following the departure of Aleksandar “⁠kassad⁠” Trifunović but was only part of the lineup for two months before the organisation put their Counter-Strike division on hold and made all players available for transfer.

Cloud9 are now left with only Patrick “⁠es3tag⁠” Hansen still under contract following the lateral move of Erick “⁠Xeppaa⁠” Bach and Ricky “⁠floppy⁠” Kemery to the organisation’s VALORANT division, and the release of their remaining members.

Elmapuddy’s time with Cloud9 has come to an end

The departure of the 25-year-old Australian marks the end of his second tenure with Cloud9, having previously spent a short period with the organisation’s previous squad, led by Damian “⁠daps⁠” Steele, before their move to Gen.G.

Despite finding limited success with Cloud9‘s European project, Elmapuddy previously coached Gen.G to a win at DreamHack Open Anaheim, one of the last notable LAN events to take place, as well as a first-place finish in the first North American Regional Major Ranking (RMR) event of 2020, ESL One: Road to Rio.

Lyngby Vikings finalize overhaul | HLTV.org

Lyngby Vikings have completed an overhaul of their CS:GO roster with three new signings, which sees the Danish organization move away from an international lineup as they added former Copenhagen Flames players Marcus “⁠maNkz⁠” Kjeldsen and Jakob “⁠Daffu⁠” Schildt, and ex Quantum Bellator Fire member Theis “⁠J3nsyy⁠” Jensen.

The move comes in the aftermath of Henrik “⁠FeTiSh⁠” Christensen‘s team’s turbulent start to 2021, during which Lyngby Vikings played with more than ten different players after going international in January.

Daffu returns to the Vikings after a short stint with Copenhagen Flames

The latest iteration featured the two long-time members, Rasmus “⁠raalz⁠” Steensborg and Thomas “⁠birdfromsky⁠” Due-Frederiksen, who remain part of the organization moving forward, as well as anarkez, FASHR, and hns, who have departed the active roster following a brief spell with the Danish side.

Two of the new additions, maNkz and Daffu, are no strangers to the organization, with the former having played under the Lyngby Vikings banner for six months in 2020 and the latter for nearly two years in 2018-2020 before they both moved on to Copenhagen Flames.

Lyngby Vikings‘ new team looks as follows:

DenmarkRasmus “⁠raalz⁠” Steensborg
DenmarkThomas “⁠birdfromsky⁠” Due-Frederiksen

DenmarkJakob “⁠Daffu⁠” Schildt

NG cease operations | HLTV.org

Thai esports organization NG has closed its doors, announcing the news on their Facebook on Friday. In the post, one of the organization’s owners Samakorn Mahawong was singled out as the reason for the operation shutting down, as his actions “led to an inevitable fall of the project due to lack of investment and support that was promised,” it is claimed.

The remaining co-founders were not responsible for Mahawong’s actions as the director of NG, according to the announcement, in which it is explained that the “CS:GO team, social media team, and the co-owners will continue to operate under a new banner” while looking for funding that would allow them to reach the vision they have for the team.

XigN and co. are looking for new funding

The former NG roster features standout players from five different Asian countries, with Hyun-Pyo “⁠XigN⁠” Lee headlining the team. Former TYLOO and Grayhound members Kevin “⁠xccurate⁠” Susanto and Erdenetsogt “⁠erkaSt⁠” Gantulga brought international experience to the table, with Thotsaphon “⁠cbbk⁠” Suphatthanaphalaphon and in-game leader Anthony “⁠ImpressioN⁠” Lim completing the lineup.

NG‘s team was finalized in January and played a limited number of HLTV-featured matches since, but intends to stick together as a five-man squad in hopes of leaving a mark on the Asian scene in the long run. The ex-NG squad is yet to announce under which name they will be competing moving forward.

NG had the following roster:

KoreaHyun-Pyo “⁠XigN⁠” Lee
SingaporeAnthony “⁠ImpressioN⁠” Lim
IndonesiaKevin “⁠xccurate⁠” Susanto
ThailandThotsaphon “⁠cbbk⁠” Suphatthanaphalaphon
MongoliaErdenetsogt “⁠erkaSt⁠” Gantulga

PACT sign bnox | HLTV.org

The Polish team’s roster is once again complete following the departure of Arek “⁠Vegi⁠” Nawojski.

PACT have announced the signing of their new fifth player, Bartosz “⁠bnox⁠” Niebisz. The 21-year-old has joined the Polish side from Pompa to fill the gap left by Vegi, who stepped down from the team in April only three months into his stint.

The changes come in the aftermath of a disappointing showing in the 36th season of ESEA Premier, in which the Dawid “⁠lunAtic⁠” Cieślak-led squad placed 16th after winning two in eight matches in Group B, resulting in the organization’s demotion to ESEA Advanced for season 37.

bnox finalizes PACT’s lineup after a brief trial

bnox was bought out from his previous organization, Pompa, following a two-week trial period, during which he played his first official matches with PACT in qualifiers for IEM Summer and Flashpoint 3 without success and helped them pick up two wins in LOOT.BET Season 9.

His debut as a permanent member of the squad will take place in the last round of the latter tournament’s Swiss group stage, in which PACT are set to lock horns with compatriots Anonymo for a spot in the playoffs on Friday at 13:20
